Brooke- welcome. sorry I didn't know you were here or I would have introduced you!

From @Jeralyn -- Brooke- welcome. sorry I didn't know you were here or I would have introduced you!
We will post the regional reports on our CTE website.
Could you post the link to the full report in the chat window?
Looking at the annual average projected job growth, I’m wondering if that percentage is of the jobs within the specific training category or is it the percent of total projected job growth? So 0.7% for where a postgraduate degree is needed, is that .7% job growth within all the jobs currently needing a postgraduate degree, or is it .7% of all the jobs no matter training needed?
The education slide shows annual average projected job growth by training required (for an occupation).
Okay, thank you! I was a bit surprised by that slide but now it makes sense. There probably aren’t a ton of jobs that require the level of training so any small growth would equal a rather large percentage change. Do you all provide the actual growth for each of those categories by the number of jobs?
If it’s in the report, I can find it there. Just wanted to check.
That information is in several locations in the report. We look at the occupation supply gap.

General trends on page 22
Also, future growth by field and cluster

This has been great Erin - I apologize that I have to drop off for a different meeting at 10:00. Take care everyone!
I’m surprised by Manufacturing seeing a negative growth rate.
Any reasons why this might be so?
Great addition to your next app.
Hey Kelly, total employment in Manufacturing is declining across the state. Declining 7.4% in the NW, 10% in the NE, 2.4% in the MSP Metro, 3.9% in Central MN.
The difference in skills in occupations that are experiencing unemployment compared to occupations that are going to experience growth.
That seems like a large skill gap.
The good news is that there are plenty of younger folks that were on the unemployment claims and have enough time for retraining.
Thanks for your response, Erin, on the manufacturing aspect. That makes total sense.
Providing programming online/virtual can cause a lot of problems for folks that have digital literacy gaps.
Something that needs attention, I think.
How do you see COVID-19 and the subsequent responses impacting current trends in workforce needs and educational delivery?
Great information everyone. Really enjoyed this presentation! Keep up the great work!
Glad you could join, Kelly! Thanks everyone for joining today...
Thanks Kelly! Reach out if you have any questions while reading through the report.
